I have 2nd generation iPod Nano. I have selected “Open iTunes when this iPod is connected”. iTunes will not open when I connect my iPod. Instead, Windows opens a folder window as if the iPod is another drive. When I click on iTunes it will open and then, and only then, will it “see” my Nano and sync it. I do not have "enable disk use checked". I had recently taken a number of steps to speed up my boot time including alterations using msconfig. I shut down several services I was fairly certain I was not using. Only now I’m having this issue with my Nano and my wife’s Video iPod as well. Any suggestions?

Perhaps you have stopped one that iTunes uses to detect iPod connections?

In msconfig on the startup tab I re-selected "iTunes Helper.exe" and that did the trick. Thanks for the suggestion.
